[Ennead Games] Name Maker Volume 2: Dwarfs Ennead Games

The Helpful List series, also by Ennead Games, provide lists of 100 pre-generated names to help save time when creating characters. But sometimes you want more options or just need to come up with lots of various names based around a theme at once.

The Name Maker helps to fill that void. Each volume contains a themed series of first names (these can double up as middle names) for female and male characters, although there is nothing stopping you from mixing the names, plus surnames, also called family or clan names.

This volume covers names for Dwarfs, translated into the common language from the original dwarfish tongue.

Inside this volume:

  • 2 x d100 tables with names suitable for a female dwarfs first name
  • 2 x d100 tables with names suitable for a male dwarfs first name
  • 2 x d100 tables with words that can be used as the first part of a dwarfs surname
  • 2 x d100 tables with words that can be used as the second part of a dwarfs surname

The full format (first name, middle name, and both surname parts) allows for 200 x 200 x 200 x 200 or 1,600,000,000 possible combinations, maybe more!

Example Possible Names:-


  • Deldeth Merrybeam
  • Kalla Blackbrand
  • Nola Stonecleaver
  • Tarbryn Forgeflayer


  • Babund Amberhelm
  • Gargur Bouldermasher
  • Nalur Frostseeker
  • Thorsun Dimtankard

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar "Living" campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave's first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft). Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
